Review of Romance In Stereo by Dan Sartain on Shed House Records
Reviewed by Joseph Timmons: IndiePulse Music Journal
Romance In Stereo by Dan Sartain is a surreal journey into a blessed sonic dissonance, not for the weak of mind, a trip into surreal love songs and statements of self-delusion.
This is album sound is raw, mixed to sound un-mixed and has a raw passion that is just one drink away from intoxicated.
At first I thought Dan Sartain was just expressing a love for theatrical and dramatic apathy, then I thought of other artists that had similar styles such as Tom Waits and writers like Allen Ginsberg and realized, I believe that his lyrical prose is one of exposure, facing the reality of vain circumstance and tipping the martini glass with the one outstretched finger, smiling through the smoke grinning the grin of knowing the dark secret of the moment.
Love is Crimson, Public Dancer, Mister Moon Light, Plug Me In & Turn Me On and Live To Tell About It.. Wow, talk about anguish on the dance floor, all great stuff and al on luscious vinyl with an unpolished approach to display.
Go to http://www.facebook.com/DanSartainOfficial to find his next performance, but go to http://joindansartain.bandcamp.com/album/romance-in-stereo to buy it in Digital or Vinyl, this is a great album and you should have it!
Update / Correction it, you can not buy the album on vinyl from the website for Dan Sartai , only from http://www.shedhouserecords.com and for the rest of the month $5 from each pink LP will go to the national breast cancer foundation, so buy an album and help save lives, a win win!
